Ixta Belfrage’s menu is a vibrant selection of dishes inspired by her Brazilian, Mexican and Italian upbringing – “these three cuisines have shaped the way I cook,” says Ixta. 


To drink, Ixta has infused pears with tangerine and lemon juice, dried Mexican chillies, rooibos tea and fresh mint to create a fruity drink with complex layers of flavour. It can be enjoyed as it is with ice and lime, or with a splash of tequila or mezcal.


“The main is inspired by Italian aubergine parmigiana, but with a Mexican twist”, explains Ixta. She layers aubergine with a creamy cheese sauce made with feta, mozzarella, gruyère and cream, as well as salsa roja – a Mexican salsa made with tomato, onion, ancho and habanero chillies and cumin and coriander seeds. It’s then baked in the oven until bubbling.


To cut through the rich aubergine centrepiece, Ixta serves a crunchy gem lettuce salad, tossed in a sharp lime dressing with plenty of fresh herbs, mild green chillies and sesame salt, as well as sweet blanched spring onions with miso, chives and crispy onions.
